ausEE Inc Virtual Show 2021: Feeding Difficulties in Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders: What does Speech Pathology have to do with it? – Carly Veness
Feeding and swallowing difficulties are more common in children with Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders (EGIDs). Any problems with the gastrointestinal tract can contribute to problems with eating, drinking and the enjoyment of mealtimes. Managing feeding and swallowing difficulties requires a multidisciplinary team, with speech pathologists playing a central role in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of feeding disorders. We will discuss the relationship between EGIDs and feeding difficulties, and how feed aversions develop in children with gastrointestinal conditions. Management principles, referral pathways and further resources will also be shared.
